That said - the dealer will likely not be able to change the fog light option for you.

My dealer wanted an hour of labor to change the door locks from open one door when you touch the handle to opening all of them. This can be done with the factory navigation system too, but the key fob button combinations given in the owner's manual did not work and I do not have navi. This was after having my KOS reflashed the second time and it still "forgetting" my FASTKEY FOB/remote unlock buttons (works fine at the door and ignition) but the car was then out of warranty. I also had the single step instructions on the menu items you need to access to change it with their scan tool and offered to walk the tech through it for the 5 minutes it would take. Changing the stereo is a similar operation, but your dealer may charge less (or do it for free if you order the stereo parts from them).

There are many other uses for the tactrix cable, but you are going to have a little bit of "figuring stuff out" to do to get this done. IMHO, I'd be buying the tactrix cable anyway - so it is a no brainer. If not, see how much your dealer wants to charge and weigh the cost benefit yourself.

Well, let your doubts be freed. The dealer has the ability to change the sound system type and has the knowledge and manual to do so. They likely cannot change the fog light option though.
Digging up an old thread. Just swapped my 2012 rockford system w/ bluetooth for a 2011 rockford navigation unit. Same part number as the 2012 evo units. Will access to the ETACS be able to reconnect my Hands free module and let the car know it has navigation now?

Thanks to this guy: TrailBrake

I couldn't find any menus to program keys and didn't attempt any window mods yet (though I assume it only works for the driver's window). Hopefully I can look more soon.
